1.12evidence-based reading instruction using reliable, trustworthy, and valid evidence consistent
1.13with science-based reading research. This includes developing foundational reading skills
1.14relying on phonemic or phonological awareness, phonics and decoding, fluency, vocabulary,
1.15and comprehension that can be differentiated to meet the needs of individual students.
1.16(b) The science of reading does not include using visual memory as the primary basis
1.17for teaching word recognition and does not include the use of the three-cueing system model,
1.18based on meaning, structure or syntax, and visual cues, also known as MSV, as a method

2.5(2) explains how proficient reading and writing develop, why some children have
2.6difficulties developing key literacy skills, and how schools can best assess and instruct early
2.7literacy, including the use of evidence-based literacy instruction practices to promote reading
2.8and writing achievement.
